Spoilers and speculations:
The raws of kaiju no 8 won’t be available due to the simultaneous release of the English and Japanese release. But its fans are still coming up with theories and speculations for the upcoming chapters.
Advancing deeper into Kikoru’s character arc, the fans are excited that the story is finally going somewhere. Many complained that this fight was drawn are more than it needed to mostly classic anime fight troupes were at play. But the 2nd half of the latest chapter was the strongest part of this arc, according to the popular sentiment that is.
By now the fight is progressing it is abiding by most of the shonen fight tropes and with this being her “come back” fight, it is likely that Kikoru will win against 15 without interference from Kafka.
The fight has already invested too many chapters into Kikoru’s character arc. Unless the mangaka has other plans for Kikoru the fight is likely to conclude in the next two chapters.
We have yet to see how other defense force captains are keeping up with their foes.
Kaiju No 9 has likely set up each of them to fight with Kaiju keeping in mind their weaknesses. They all will likely lose or be left severely injured from their fight just for the Kaiju to be called back by Kaiju No 9.
Kafka or Kaiju No 8 is still nowhere to be seen.
After Kikoru’s win against Kaiju No 15, Kaiju No 9 will probably show up to put down Kikoru. At that moment Kafka is likely to show up and the fans might get a Kaiju No 9 vs Kafka and Kikoru fight.
